Of Sayaka Sato & Dato Lee Chong Wei/Lin Dan

I am still in the Badminton fever mode and in the midst of surfing, I came across two videos from that badminton forum that led me to this very informative website here. (just what I am looking for!)

When I watched the first video of Sayaka Sato grimacing and crying out in pain, it nearly made me cry as well....  She was leading in the badminton court when she landed at odd angles and collapsed, grimacing in pain... She continued to play despite the pain but after a few shots, her coaches urged her to stop... she was sobbing uncontrollably in court.. shattered dream...felt so sorry for her...

Reminded me of our Dato' Lee Chong Wei when he injured his ankle during the Thomas Cup few months ago.  He was also crying, partly because on physical pain as well as the fear of not being able to play anymore....

Lee Chong Wei's apology to the Malaysians...


  1. Chong Wei's apology reminds me of one of Rudyard Kipling's poem - IF Such a humble person he is...

  2. Pam, cos of the high expectation Malaysians have for him..

  3. he seems to be a really nice person

  4. About time they look for new blood and groom them, Dato' can be the coach - no spring chicken anymore...and 5 years is a long time. Like China, they start from very very young...

  5. Pandalela won bronze medal in diving!!!! Well done to her!!! Sorry to say this on this post Claire.

  6. kash: i also heard a moment ago!! congrats to her!!

    stp: i think now the parents of young kids will be encouraged...

    mecoy: i dont know him personally.. i guess he is nice.. :)

  7. Cheers Malaysia!

  10. guess what.... i didn't get to watch the match!!!!!
